The photographs below are of skin rashes specifically on the legs of children. Itchy rashes can be caused by contact with an irritant or a fungus, or they may be due to an auto immune disease. Pus-filled bumps called boils and folliculitis (an ingrown hair causing irritation or friction) can both be seen on the legs. Stretch marks are the result of rapid weight gain or weight loss and are most often seen on the stomach and the legs after a growth spurt. In the summertime, legs are more exposed and, thus, more vulnerable to bites and stings from bees and other bugs. The legs are also more prone to poison ivy dermatitis, which causes an oozing and very itchy rash. Tiny white, pimple-like bumps called keratosis pilaris are common on the legs.
